Avocado flowers open twice - once when the female parts are mature and then again (after closing for many hours) when the male parts are mature. This helps prevent self-fertilisation but means that lone plants rarely produce fruit. Orchards must ensure they include cultivars with flowers that open at different times to ensure pollination takes place.

TIPS

Soil for Potted Plants

Plants should be grown in fertilised potting mix. Make or buy a fertilised mix which consist of coco peat moss or coconut fiber (coir), vermiculite or perlite, compost and other ingredients. A lightweight soil for potted plants needs to provide good drainage, hold moisture, and give roots room to grow.

Light Requirements

 All plants depend on light for their survival, and making sure your potted plants get the right amount of light is key to keeping them happy. For both indoor and outdoor containers, group plants with similar light requirements. Don't mix shade lovers with sun lovers in a single pot; one or both of them will be unhappy, depending on where you place the pot.
